AMPL > >General > >What is AMPL?

AMPL is a computer language for describing production, distribution, blending, scheduling and many other kinds of problems known generally as large-scale optimization or mathematical programming.

AMPL’s familiar algebraic notation and interactive command environment are designed to help formulate models, communicate with a wide variety of solvers, and examine solutions.

AMPL’s flexibility and convenience make it ideal for rapid prototyping and development of models, while its speed and generality provide the resources required by repeated production runs.
